I read a blog/sparkpage a few days ago in which the SparkPerson had it as her goal to lose 100 pounds in 300 days, which boils down to a pound every 3 days. I wonder how she eats and exercises and what her progress is, but I don't know her or remember her name so I'll probably never know. In the 3rd or 4th week of my program, it felt like I was losing a pound every 3 days for a little while, then the stall, regain and plateau. I would be happy now to lose a pound every week and maybe a little bit more. Do any of you actually lose a pound every 3 days? I think the main reason I don't do it is that it is hard to be hardcore about my weight loss all. the. time.
Yesterday, I blogged about my plateau and how I was recommitting to getting my edge back. I did great yesterday on eating veggies and drinking water. Today, I had errands to run so I put on my pedometer and walking shoes and headed out. I was able to go to the beach and made myself do 30 minutes of walking. The temp was a bit cool so no one was actually in the water although some were sunbathing or shirtless or in an actual bathing suit. I wore my shorts that have become really saggy and baggy, especially when the pockets are loaded with Ipod, phone, keys and pedometer. It was nice to see the ocean and appreciate the great outdoors.
This morning my scales reported a 3-pound release so I was pretty happy about that. My mood has been terrific ever since! Hopefully the scales will say the same thing again tomorrow so I will feel like it's real. I have a hard time believing my weight until I've had it for a day or two. I was on that plateau for a long time! If I can get down to a new decade, I'll measure my waist, etc. and see if those numbers have decreased since the last time I did them (a long time ago).
Happy sparking y'all!
